Pamela says of the couples relaxed riverside wedding…
How did you meet?
We worked for the same company started as friends we had both been married before and had been together for over 30 years as a couple before we married.
Tell us about the Proposal…
We were away in Gran Canaria, and it was New Year’s Eve and I had just had my 70th birthday that year.
Fireworks were going off, and loud music was playing as the clock struck twelve and he decided to make an honest women of me.
How did you find the wedding planning experience?
The wedding planning experience went very smoothly
We decided on the Brandy Hole yacht club by the River Crouch as we wanted our venue to have a relaxed atmosphere, and somewhere that could accommodate whole families from young children, to teenagers and older family members.
Before we got engaged whenever we had a family get together the burning question was always “When are you two going to tie the knot!!?
So we planned our day with a barbecue and sent our guests an invitation which read…
“You are invited to a Barbeque so save the day …………… By the way we are getting married before we eat!!”
How did you choose the look of the day?
The venue has a beautiful room looking over the River Crouch so to style the day we just used lots of flowers with an aim of keeping everything low key and relaxed.
What was the best bit of the day?
Having all our families and friends together socialising, and all the younger children playing together enjoying themselves.
The weather was also kind to us and the setting overlooking the river was lovely.
What advice would you give to other couples?
Take time to visit different venues and take into consideration the range of guests you are going to invite.
Doesn’t matter how old you are too, wedding planning can sometimes be stressful with you hoping everything will be OK but don’t let that overwhelm you.
